Lacrosse Pro (with Sean Lawton)

Professional sports are such a unique and incredible thing. Unlike many other professions where there can be prerequisites, necessary degrees, and boxes to check to be afforded an opportunity for employment, sports asks only one thing of you. Are you one of the best people in the entire world that does this? If the answer is no, well then you better work even harder until you are or move along and find yourself another profession. It is the truest form of Darwinism that we have in modern...

3D Printing Engineer (with Tom DiLaura)

1/1/2018
More
Applications and technology have really changed the look and feel of the world in the last decade. Transportation, finances, dating, you name it, it’s all been changed and it all feels very different than it did just 10 years ago. One area that might not seem very different is how we make physical goods. Manufacturing mass quantities of goods that we use has remained fairly the same, but that doesn’t mean that nothing has changed. Recently, mainstream adoption and advancements in 3D printing...

Prescribed Burn Crew Member (with Tyler Cross)

First of all I want to say that my thoughts are with everyone in California that is currently displaced because of the fires. I also want to send out a huge thank you to all of the amazing men and women that fight fires like this when they arise. If you would like to come on the show and tell your story, we would love to have you. In today’s episode I speak with Tyler Cross who is a prescribed burn crew member for a nature conservation company. It seems counter intuitive when it damages...

Elderly Services Non Profit (with Meg Barhite)

12/11/2017

If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that all of us are going to be old someday. Yet, we don’t seem to give the elderly the amount of respect or attention that we would most likely want for our future selves. The is unfortunate socially, but can become a real predicament when it comes to looking at and tackling the problems that face senior citizens today. Trying to raise money for educating children in a third world country? Here’s my credit card. Trying to raise money for the...

High School English Teacher (with Kara McCabe)

12/4/2017
More
Reading is something that, like most people, I didn’t really take to until I got older. When I was growing up, even through high school and college, I had way too much stuff on my plate to concern myself with reading. Which friends house am I gonna go over to? How can I cover up the fact that I didn’t do my homework today? Does Madison like me or is she just being really nice? So many questions and concerns running around my head, and reading definitely wasn’t one of them. In the past few...

Organ Donation (with Miles Kueffner)

A couple days ago we celebrated Thanksgiving. It’s a wonderful holiday where we spend time with people that we love and think about the things in our lives that we are grateful for. With that in mind I wanted to put out an episode that could touch on that note of gratitude, and what better episode could there be than an interview on organ donation. It is the biggest and most important gift that you can give someone! There were people this past Thursday that were sitting with their...

LGBTQ Writer (with Maura Lee Bee)

As humans we are on a never ending quest to relate to each other. It’s one of our best universal qualities. Sympathy. Empathy. Walk a mile in their shoes. We have words for all of it. It is this unyielding empathy that makes literature, and the characters in the stories that we tell, so important. When we relate to a character on the page, we may open up more to characters like that in our lives. We may even open up more to parts of ourselves that we previously shied away from. It is with...

“You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” - Dr. Seuss It’s been a while since I felt the magic and wonder in my life that I felt regularly as a child. Luckily for me, in my adult years, I’ve learned that Dr. Seuss is right. All you need to suddenly be in a place where magic and mystery are still alive and well is a book. Luckily for them, many children realize that you don’t have to wait until you’re a boring old adult to have this epiphany. Today...

Metaphysical Cleanse (with Stephanie Kato)

Humans are some pretty complicated organisms. We have a body, mind, and spirit all wrapped into one package. Each needs it’s own nurturing and care, and the health of each will influence the other two. Yet even knowing this, we are often “too busy” to really care for ourselves the way we know we should. We may go to the gym and see how the time that we give to our bodies also helps pacify our minds, but how often do we try to work the other way around? Today’s guest, Stephanie Kato, is a...

Have you ever been sick before? How did you ultimately get better? If it was anything more than a common cold, it probably involved taking some drugs.

Food Diary Creator (with Laura Mulkerne)

What goes into your mouth usually matters quite a bit more than what comes out. Food allergies, Celiac, IBS, cancer, Alzheimer's, depression; things that impact us physically, mentally, and emotionally all seem to be on the rise. And yet do a quick google search and you can find someone that has fought every one of these things with changes to their diet. With stakes like these, and general energy and happiness levels in play for all of us, it’s a wonder that more of us don’t track our...

Latin Teacher (with Chuck Fontana)

Language is unquestionably the most important revelation that occurred throughout human history. An easy way to explain a complicated idea to someone. A quick way to let someone know how you feel. A means to prevent conflict and allow us to settle our differences in a more civilized manner. Despite it’s importance, we don’t really pay it much attention from day to day. We just walk around, using our language of choice, not considering how that language came to be. Today we learn about one...

I want you to think about the difficult decisions you’ve made in your life. More specifically, I want you to think about the tough conversations you’ve had to have about these decisions. Maybe telling your parents that you’re moving out? Dropping out of school to pursue your dream? How about telling your significant other, “You know that large amount of student debt I accumulated to become a lawyer? Well, I decided I’m going to stop practicing law and start baking pies for a living...

Food. We all love to eat it, and a lot of us even love to make it. Maybe that’s why so many people dream of one day opening up their own restaurant. Making food for strangers who would one day become your friends. Getting the know the community around you through the worlds greatest (family friendly) pastime. It really seems like a great existence. Today we learn about the ups and downs of the restaurant life from brothers and successful restaurateurs, Aaron and Jared Pool.

Yoga Instructor (with Christie Rafanan)

What is yoga? Is the answer a simple one about exercise or is it a complex one about philosophy and awareness? After today’s interview I have a feeling that if you asked 10 different people you may get 10 different answers. Christie Rafanan is an amazing yoga teacher in San Francisco, and a good friend of mine. We’ll dive into that many layered question trying to define yoga and hear about how it transformed Christie’s life.

Recreational Therapist (with Andrew Hermansen)

What do you think of when you think of the word therapy? Therapist? Most of us think of traditional psychotherapy, talking through your life and problems with someone. Using your head to fix your head. However, many people and cultures throughout history have placed an equal, if not greater, focus on the body as a means to mental health. Surrounding yourself with nature, exercising, playing, these are all things that can have a massive impact on your mental state. In fact, it’s so...
